Event Description

Reduce Plastic Component Failure through Systematic Failure Analysis

Plastic components used in a variety of applications fail in the field. In many cases it is essential to ascertain the mechanism and cause of the failure. The most efficient and effective method of determining how and why the product failed, is to perform a systematic failure analysis following scientific method.  Someone once said, “if you don’t know how something broke, you can’t fix it”, and this certainly highlights the importance of a thorough understanding of how the product failure happened.

This session with expert speaker Jaffrey Jansen will introduce you to the methodology needed to perform a failure analysis. Following this, the session will cover the most common tests used to identify the how and the why of plastic failure. Jeffrey will also cover the molecular nature of plastic failure and the four most important failure mechanisms. The session will conclude with a number of case studies to illustrate the concepts of plastic failure analysis.

By understanding how and why plastic failure has occurred, it becomes easier to reduce future failure. You will learn what pitfalls to avoid in material selection, design, and processing. You will come away better equipped to solve plastics problems in the most efficient and effective manner.

Session Highlights

  • Get a systematic approach that can be followed to determine the cause of a plastic component failure.
  • Understand how factors associated with material, design, processing, installation, and service interact to produce failure.
  • Learn which tests can be used to effectively assess a failed part.
  • The mechanisms of environmental stress cracking (ESC), creep, fatigue, and molecular degradation are the leading mechanisms of plastic failure, and will be introduced.
  • The concept of plastic failure through molecular disentanglement will be explained.
  • Become familiar with the process of conducting a failure investigation
  • Identify which tests can provide information pertinent to the failure
  • Understand the five factors effecting plastic part performance
  • Recognize the primary plastic failure mechanisms
  • How do you define failure?
  • Plastics cracking and mechanism of plastic failure
